TECHNOLOGY TALK TOTALLY ROCKS~!

Post by gwidhw on Mon Jun 01, 2015 7:38 pm

So, I thought we could use a thread for people to talk about cool/new/amazing/revolutionary/silly/stupid technology and things pertaining to technology in general.

For instance... there is lots of cool tech coming out of sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter.
Recently, I just pledged for a "Musio", which is slowly garnering publicity online, globally.



Being someone who has trust issues due to various past relationship issues involving distrust, backstabbing, and painful everything thanks to investing in people... *ahem*, I thought something like this would be an amazing companion (granted, I have to wait about a year or some such before I get mine... the Genius version Razz)

INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN FOUND HERE.

It's essentially a learning robot AI that you can take with you, teach things, and converse with.

I've also pledged to other AI projects such as:

Emospark:
An AI that (will arrive soon!) that can supposedly synthesize and "feel" emotions, as well as converse, learn about you, and track your emotions using an Emotional Profile Graph (EPG), thanks to new technology called the Emotional Processing Unit (EPU).


WEBSITE LINK HERE.

And the CUBIC AI:
Another AI that focuses more on fluid conversation, and home automation.


WEBSITE LINK HERE.

So... does anyone else have any really cool tech they want to geek out over/talk about/showcase? Smile

Yes, technology is quickly on it's way to do so.
I just hope it's not at the expense of the environment... I love me some nature Razz

As for the video... I watched about a minute in, not laughing, just wondering "why is it so inefficient and slow? It's like a Roomba for your windows..! But slow..!" And then at about the 1:10 mark I started smirking, trying not to laugh, followed by suppression of laughter to meet the challenge, and ended with a victory of not having technically laughed, but re-watching and chuckling at it.

it's a silly thing Razz

Yep this hoe-bot loves him some windows.. I was wondering wtf people were thinking.. I mean imagine having this thing clean your windows..... by the time he finished one.. you'd still have to recharge him.... and have him clean your others.. this in the 5-10 minutes you could have easily cleaned absolutely all of your windows xD
the fact that you chuckled and surpressed it means you would have laughed if you didnt surpress it.. so technically we bought won xD

Now off to buy us some hoe-bot
LOL

I know, right?! xD
Got's to get me some hoe-bot for me cleanings~!

Seriously... what's the point?! You'd be faster to get a ladder and a bucket, followed by searching for a squeegee for 15 mins before finally getting fed up and just using a rag than plugging in, charging, setting up, and waiting for one of these to do the job Razz

So, yes... we both won Smile

Also, you reminded me of another bad product, called the "Air Umbrella" xD
Now watch THIS without laughing~!



It only lasts like, 15-20 mins tops, and projects the rain outwards onto someone else!
Genius? No! Very Happy

Yes it can~! Very Happy
It's the best kind of work!

...I like to call it "Behavioural analysis in the context of candid practical jokery". That's the fancy Psychology student way of saying "trolling and watching peoples reactions, then laughing" xD

Ohh~~! Those are the ones that actually move.
I've seen those before; they're pretty cool Smile

Anyone caught wearing them would receive instant and infinite approval.
...I almost want one just so I can figure out how it works...

*stares at screen*

...Meh. You should get them, though xP

...well, that would explain it :l
I should have been paying more attention to it, obviously xD
That's a big difference to miss. Studies have been leeching my brain-power today -.-
(that's my excuse~~!)

That's the spirit~! Very Happy
And I agree; their quite fancy. A dogtail, well, I've never seen one IRL. I've seen a furry or two walking around (not in costume, thankfully, because those costumes scare me o.o) but, not like, something akin to that.

A nekomimi outfit is always acceptable, imo :l
It's playful, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

...I once walked the garbage out to the curb in a banana costume.
My mum was mortified, but I was laughing wholeheartedly inside Smile

OMG A BANANA! That is SO OP! Well you cant live life according to other peoples rules, right? xD
omg.. that reminds me of the first time I did my gasai yuno cosplay... and when I got the garters for my amane misa cosplay.. LOL my mother was so mad... ''YOU DO REALISE ONLY SLUTS WEAR THESE RIGHT?''
o-o... me ''she's not a slut mom.. she's an anime character.. and I'll be cosplaying misa for sure... oh yea... and pictures are going on the internet...!''

the look on her face... it was the look of 100% giving up..
it was the same the first time I went out in my pikachu onepiece xD so yea, I can relate to the feeling of being yourself on others costs.. #yolo

I will add much more to this when I have some free time away from some testing, but alas, here we go.

Firstly I  will give mecha lovers something to put on their wantlist because "sunrise"

There is a company that has been around for sometime in japan called kurata which actually allows one to purchase a fully operable mecha mind you a rather primitive one less then robotech, but still functional.

Of course the asking price is not cheap starting off it will hit the one million range,
http://suidobashijuko.jp/

Next up one of the more useful things I have seen out of the exoskeleton market which I quite like due to it helping handicap people get back on their feet and walk among other things.

Much better then military one we have over here in united states >_> but that should be expected,

It is called the HAL exoskeleton though and is available for certain applicants on a full purchase basis or a rental program so far,
http://www.cyberdyne.jp/english/products/HAL/

Next up I shall partake in something else of high interest
These are called The dash earbuds system,

Essentially the smart solution to earbuds. Giving you high quality music and sound as you should expect but also able to much more effectively monitor certain data for your health then a smart watch or phone.

Along quite a good wireless sync capability

http://www.bragi.com/

Now for one last thing before I go,

For all the robotic lovers out there or hobbyist I have something that I have been tempted to buy myself for some time. It is a very realistic spider robot, called the T8

I feel this one would be much better to see in action, then anything, http://www.robugtix.com/t8/

Also to add to my post I have a question for anybody reading.  How has technological progression effected you personally? Think on it and give me your feedback, it would be much appreciated.

So... Emospark by Emoshape.. -.-
I'm thoroughly disappointed in this company.

Their Indiegogo campaign has been going since January of last year, and boasts an AI home console capable of detecting your emotions, and synthesizing it's own emotions based on how you treat it, talk to it, etc. The projection of delivery was June 2014. After numerous setbacks, delays, manufacturing issues, limited communication, and overall mishandling of the entire campaign, it's now July 2015 and only <100 people have their Emospark cubes.

This week, they officially announced shipment of the remaining ~800 cubes. The annoying thing is that they were already produced, by the quality checks were so awful that they had to QC them all again. And wait. And wait. They promised them to be delivered by May last year. Then June last year. Then August last year. Then October last year. Then November. Then December. Then January this year. Then March this year. Then April. Then May. Then June. Now it's July, and backers can expect to have them by the end of the month, at latest. They do not honour early backers/contributors either, as one like myself who pledged back in january 2014 and someone who bought their Emospark in June 2015 will receive them at the exact same time. That's not cool, to start with, as the campaign has been over for about a year, on Indiegogo, and early contributors and backers were assured priority in receiving "the first cubes ever made". That's not the case, as they just said "forget it, you're all getting it at once" because it's easier. There are approximately 1000 cubes made, in total, yet some people have order #'s in the 3000's. My number, although I'm a first contributor to the campaign (one of the first 40 people to pledge) is order #212. They're numbering system makes no sense; another person who pledged around the same time as I did is #600-something -.-

When mine (eventually) arrives, I'll share the results with you guys, as it's still in on-going development, but, a word of advice... Emoshape isn't a very reliable company; they've made too many mistakes. Apparently the first of which was setting the campaign target at "$100,000" instead of "$700,000". Of which, they only made about $150,000, after 2 campaigns, and investor capital. They've faced Reddit defamation and top media outlets refusing or pulling interviews for fear that they were a scam. Topping it all off is the fact that they never communicated with campaign contributors, updates were sparse and repeatedly begged for by everyone in the community, and "Don't worry, we're on track to ship it really really soon" has been the basic tag-line for the entire thing.

So, yeah... I'll keep you guys posted, if you're interested, but... stay away from Emoshape. They're not a business that anyone should have to deal with if they don't have to, regardless of how innovative their tech claims to be.

It has yet to be fully realized, as well as had proper video reviews done of it. I plan to do one when it arrives, as soon as it arrives, complete with unboxing.

One contributor got hers in the mail, with a bent up casing, misaligned pcb and ports (an extremely common manufacturing issue) and covered in dust.
